Markos Petridis, who had Russian origins, started the history of BRAVA in a small 80 square meters shop.
Always with an innovative spirit, Markos decided to enrich his product portfolio with mustard, in an era that Greeks little knew about this tasteful product.
The factory M. Petridis and Sons produces three kinds of mustards: the Mild that contains yellow mustard seed, the Hot that contains a mix of yellow and black mustard seed and the Forte that contains only black mustard seed.
This expansion motivated them to add to their products toothpicks, anchovy paste and mustard with pickles.
The new 1500 square meters plant opens in the area of Elefsis.
In 1993 Mediterranean Foods S.A. acquired the brand name BRAVA and relaunched it successfully in the market.
In 2021, the Greek food company Minerva acquires Mediterranean Foods S.A., enhancing its portfolio with the broad range of BRAVA and DELICIA condiments in the category of mustard, ketchup and sauces.
